Our Priority Environment
We prefer energy efficient equipment and infrastructures in all our investments. We reduce our energy consumption every year with LED Conversions, Solar Energy Systems, Heat recovery ventilation and insulation systems, efficient transport and lifting equipment.
With our Fast Card system, which we manage in all our land transportation operations, we prevent the use of number 10 oil and prevent supplier-sourced CO2 emissions every year. By choosing Euro 6 and above engines in our fleet vehicles, we prevent CO2 emissions and ensure its continuity with our route optimization and awareness programs on the basis of business units.
With our wing adapter, which is used in project and heavy transportation operations, we prevent tree cutting in an area of approximately 15,000 m2 and ensure energy efficient transportation. We do not compromise our environmental awareness with our wing adapter operations.
With our ISO 50001 Energy Management System and ISO 14064 Carbon Emission Verification Systems, which we have integrated since 2012, we ensure the correct, efficient use of energy resources and emission reduction.
We are the first company in the Logistics Sector to have ISO 50001 and ISO 14064 certificates, and we share our data that is verified every year in our Sustainability report.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Within the framework of corporate social responsibility understanding, it is among our basic values to consider not only the expectations of the employees, not only the customers and shareholders, but also the society.
We strengthen our cooperation with the society and our understanding of corporate social responsibility with activities aimed at complying with the law, setting an example and moving the industry forward (taking an active part in industry associations, sponsorship at sectoral summits, etc.).
